So I’ve been to a bad wedding where the bridal party seemed to walk normally sort of a fast pace down the aisle. What is the tradition? Isn’t it right foot, then feet together, then left foot, then feet together? It should be to the beat of one, foot-together, two, foot-together? Does anyone know?

@mslovely: I think that’s a TV thing. They had us do it when I was a Flower Girl, but that’s because kids tend to run if they don’t have direction. My Bridal Party just walked slowly, but normally. Pretty sure I did too.

Well, it’s not an etiquette thing, I’d say it’s pretty hard to walk down the aisle ‘wrong’. To me doing the whole ‘step, feet together’ thing felt super awkward…I just walked normally, but to the pace of my music.

I did that 20 years ago when I was in a wedding. I haven’t done at all in teh weddings I have been in for the last 10 years.

@mslovely: I’ve been to a lot of wedding and have never seen that done. Just in 80’s movies.

I’ve always just walked a little slower and to the tempo of the music.

I just walk more slowly than normal.

I don’t think there’s a right or wrong way to do it. Just depends on what the couple and their WP’s comfort level is.

I’ve seen that on TV but it always looks SO awkward to me. It probably only happens at the most absolutely formal weddings. Usually people just walk a slower than normal regular walk. It looks way more natural.

We just walked slowly. We thought the step, stop, step, stop looked silly, so we scraped it at our rehearsal.

I think just walking slowly is enough. I want to avoid any awkward pauses that day, lol.

I’ve yet to attend a wedding where the bridal party stepped to a certain beat. Some walked fast, others slow. I really didn’t pay much mind to it.

@DeathByDesign: That’s funny, we added it in at our rehearsal
